Full List of Characters & Meet and Greet Locations for Disney After Hours at Hollywood Studios

    Last night was the first Disney After Hours for 2024 at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, and we were in attendance to report on this year’s version of the event. As it turns out, Disney would surprise us with more than triple the amount of characters than last year, including some impossible-to-meet characters outside of the event. While we’ll have a full recap in the coming days, we know that many of you are interested in the character lineup, so here’s what we saw last night!

    Center Stage

    Center Stage is the area located in front of the Chinese Theater. We noticed two meet-and-greet locations at Center Stage, one on either side of the stage, and both with rotating characters. Actually, rotating characters was a common theme at many of the locations and should be expected when you go.

    Rafiki or Stitch
    The first pair of rotating characters was Rafiki or Stitch on the right side of the stage if you’re facing the Chinese Theater.

    Pinocchio or Jiminy Cricket
    On the opposite side, guests will find Pinocchio or Jiminy Cricket. The Center Stage characters seemed to have the longest lines of the night, with 10-20 people pretty common. That’s likely more a function of their central location than anything else.

    Echo Lake

    Take a walk around Echo Lake, and you’ll find four different character meet and greet opportunities, with three of them being rotating sets.

    The only character that did not rotate throughout the evening was Duffy. Guests can meet with him throughout the evening without concern that they might miss him at some point.

    Chip & Dale Rescue Rangers or Thumper
    Over near the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular theater entrance, guests can find the Rescue Rangers or Thumper throughout the evening.

    Donald Duck or Daisy Duck
    Near the now-closed-again Indiana Jones Adventure Outpost, guests can find Donald Duck or Daisy Duck!

    Goofy or White Rabbit
    Down by the edge of Echo Lake proper, guests can meet with either Goofy or the White Rabbit from Alice in Wonderland.

    Grand Avenue

    There are two character meet and greet areas along Grand Avenue, one close to the DVC kiosk and one further down near the entrance to Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge.

    Mary Poppins & Penguin or Tiana
    Near the Disney Vacation Club kiosk across from Baseline Tap House, guests can find Tiana or Mary Poppins with a penguin.

    Jasmine or Pocahontas & Meeko
    Next to the tunnel to Galaxy’s Edge, guests can find Jasmine or Pocahontas and Meeko rotating throughout the night.

    Hollywood Boulevard

    While all of the character meet and greet opportunities up until this point have been at dedicated meet and greet locations, there are two roaming characters along Hollywood Boulevard, and we’ve saved the best for last!

    Mickey Mouse or Minnie Mouse
    To our surprise, Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse stroll Hollywood Boulevard throughout the event!

    There are no characters in Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge, Toy Story Land, or Sunset Boulevard during the event.
